    My 2001 UD Legends of New York set.

    Still a few gaps (Mathewson jersey) and some autos left to go, but it's still pretty nice.

    My 1958 Topps set.
    It was my Dad's favorite as a kid, so I decided to build it about 11 years ago. He loves looking through the binder and telling me about the cards and players.

    I do truly enjoy my 1998 Leaf Fractal Materials Die-Cut set (only 50 total sets possible). Getting that Nomo Z-Axis finally was nice.

    I like my 1994 UD Holoview Red set as well.

    Not sure if I'm exactly proud of it, but I put together an entire set of 2004 Donruss Elite Extra Edition Turn of the Century /250. Got a bunch of these in a few lots I bought back in the day so I pieced the entire set together. Was challenging finding the last few cards I needed.

    other than topps total sets (for both size and very complete selection of players), my favorite set is 2000 Topps HD. I love that super clear looking photography on the cards.

    It appears to be UD 40 Man. 1182 cards on a checklist I just looked at. I don't know why I didn't start or build that one at the time it was released and I haven't found reasonable priced or quantity of boxes to do it now.

    I've got 2 favorites.

    First is my 2005 Absolute Memorabilia GU/Auto set. Great design and range of players.

    Second is my 2007 Sweet Spot Classic GU set. I am almost done, just need the Ruth and Mathewson. Have seen them a few times, but they always get out of my price range.

    Thanks

    that's awesome

    when I thinking sets I'm thinking base cards for some reason. I'm equally proud of all the sets Im working on 2001-2009 SWEET spot signatures. hard to pick just one so I'll list them in order of my preference.
    2007 immortal
    2005 classic signatures
    2008 signatures
    2001 signatures
    2002
    2005
    2009
    2003
    2004 classic
    2004
    2007
    2003 classic
    2002 classic
    2006

    all are still a work in progress but I enjoy the chase and they look amazing all laid out together
